    You definitely get a high quality alternative to any malt here. And at a more than fair price
    • Nose
      Orange liqueur, chocolate candy and caramelized brown sugar. Light Cuban rum, like Havana Club. It has this grapevine light acidity, which probably comes from the distilled cereals - in Invergordon maize and wheat. Semolina porridge dusted with cinnamon
    • Taste
      very withdrawn, not insanely voluminous, but still not boring. Definitely has less body than a malt of the same age. Dry, smooth, minimally sweet, rather spicy. Light tobacco, sandalwood and roasted chestnuts. Reminiscent of an extremely high-quality bourbon and in the meantime shows approaches of a grappa
    • Finish
      sweet-spicy oak, orange liqueur and mixed nuts

  3. Fundramental scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    This is a 30yo sherry cask whisky...for just over 100€. Ok, it's grain not malt, but boy, this one rocks. It all starts with the colour, lovely dark sherry. Overwhelming in nose and on palate, just so wonderful. Again, 30yo. Such a bargain!!

    The Grain has an alcoholic note reminiscent of rum. Needs some time in the air to develop.
    • Nose
      Sherry, vanilla, brown sugar, fruity, dark dried fruit, light floral note, spicy, oak
    • Taste
      Vanilla, sweet, liqueur, sherry, oily, fruity spiciness
    • Finish
      Nice spice, bittersweet, oak

  5. katarn_rb scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    ... reminds me of a good rum made from sherry.

    Original Tasting Notes:

    Odor: Very fine and noble, nutty, dark chocolate, Brazil nut and some tobacco.

    Taste: Dry and pure, bittersweet nut, green tobacco, fine woody notes, tangerine.

    Spicy on the finish with honey and gingerbread. A balanced elegant single grain.
